This paper shows that the data released on March 21, 2013 from the 2009 Planck probe of the European Space Agency confirms the data from the 1989 COBE (Cosmic Background Explorer) and the 2001 WMAP (Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe) of NASA that the universe is not isotropic and homogeneous on large scales; rather, it displays a marked anisotropy and inhomogeneity, therefore nullify the Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) interpretation of Einstein’s field equations that proposed isotropy and homogeneity; as well as falsifying the “inflation” theory originated in 1980 by Alan Guth as a solution to the “horizon problem,” as well as nullifying the need for Dark Matter and Dark Energy to propel expansion, as well as revealing by distinct positioning of the dipole, quadrupole and octupole harmonics of the CMB (cosmic microwave background radiation) that the famed “Axis of Evil” connecting the rim of the universe with the Earth can no longer be considered a mere artefact but is indeed in the data and shows that the CMB dipole intersects the quadrupole/octupole at the Earth’s ecliptic and equinoxes, respectively, therefore putting the Earth in a central and non-Copernican place in the universe.
Using the simplest interpretation of the current cosmological evidence concerning galactic redshift; the isotropy of the CMB; gamma-ray and X-ray bursts; and quasar distribution, as provided by the 2005 Sloan Digital Sky Survey, the 2001 Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe and other such studies, show that the Earth is in the center of the universe and that alternative interpretations advancing homogeneity and the LCDM universe (e.g., ?the center is everywhere and nowhere due to an expanding universe?) are contradicted by the di- quad- and octu-pole outcomes of the CMB; the large void area at the observation point; and the consistent concentric and quantized z-factor of the redshift around the observation point. Further evidence from the Michelson-Morley and Sagnac- type experiments from 1881 through 1932, as well as post-1932 maser and laser interferometry, including the Sagnac-based pre-programming for the Global Positioning Satellites, show that some type of ponderable ether exists, which is in principle agreement with Quantum Mechanics but opposed to Special Relativity. It is postulated that interpretations of the historic interferometer experiments that were said to yield a ?null? result were simply the victim of presuming, without proof, that the Earth was translating at 30km/sec around the sun, which leads us to the inevitable conclusion that Special Relativity was invented precisely to avoid having to answer the Michelson-Morley experiment by recourse to a motionless Earth. In actuality, none of the interferometer experiments showed a ?null? result, and as such they give convincing evidence of an ether drift that can be easily accounted for within the orthogonal margin of an ether-universe rotating around a non-rotating and non-translating Earth.
